Last fall while clearing brush, I just happened to notice both lynch pins on lower lift arms were missing. I carry spares - no problem.

Today while lubing FEL, I went under tractor looking for more grease fittings. 1 telescopic stabilizer had a retaining clip other side missing. Don't own BH never remove lift arms, I installed cotter pins in both stabilizers. The drawbar pin was missing a hairpin? Installed cotter pin there also. If you do any brush hogging or brush removal, you may want give the underside a quick inspection.

Kinda funny how that works,pushing pins in place and you slip finger/knuckle let's you know...ouch,but stick etc. remove pin like hot knife thru butter.
